Nelson Cortes

Nelson loves the sport of tennis. He enjoys teaching tennis because of the feeling of accomplishment he sees in his students when they succeed in the game. His coach Jose Luis Jimenez inspired him to become the player and instructor he is today. Nelson’s best students are people who like to have fun, work hard, and have passion for the game.
